How big can a company get with just 50 employees? We're about to find out.
Thousands of small businesses across the U.S. are desperately looking for a way to escape their own fiscal cliff. That's because ObamaCare is forcing them to cover their employees' health care or pay a fineeither of which will cut into profits and stymie future investment and growth.
We've already seen many of America's biggest companies respond to the new law by laying off employees, putting them on part-time, or raising prices. But those are short-term solutions. Ultimately, these corporations will have to innovate and restructure to thrive in the era of ObamaCare. If small businesses follow their lead, they may even gain an advantage over their big competitors.
In his 2009 book "The Future Arrived Yesterday," veteran Silicon Valley journalist Michael S. Malone described a new organizational model called a "Protean Corporation." Like a protozoan single-cell organism, the protean corporation has the ability to "shape shift," rapidly adapting to internal and external forces in the market and the company. At the heart of a true protean corporation is a tiny number of core employees surrounded by a large cloud of resources, generally contracted or outsourced talent that does most of the work.

Works for me!
“As long as there is no fraud or breach of contract, and the agreement is legal, the government really has nothing to say.”
Don’t you think the people who have figured out a million ways from Sunday to TAX US TO DEATH aren’t going to be all over this? They’re probably writing new, ever-more-intrusive laws as I type!
“Yet as small enterprises approach 50 employees (or retreat back below that number), look for a significant number of them to concentrate on growing in revenues without ever again growing in employees. The result can be a wave of entrepreneurship, new company creation, business growth and economic freedom. Not a bad result when you consider that it will be spurred by the government’s bid to keep America’s businesses under its thumb.”
I hope so. I truly do!

The IRS has announced they are already on to this.
“We have new rules. If you try we will bring them down on your head and squash you like grape.”
The main purpose of Obamacare on business was to drive small businesses out of business. Dynamic, nimble, and creative small businesses are a real threat to the government subsidized monopolies. The more rules, regulations and costs that the government can place on small businesses the less competitive they become as they switch resources to fighting the government rather than running their enterprises. Look at Europe and any other socialist country and you see a limited number of government sponsored monopolies that run the country. Even worse, their societies are structured with classes strictly locked in place. You see very little class mobility in any European or socialist country.
kids who start lemonade stands have more business and real world experience (pipper palin for example) than the current traitor bastard POSOTUS
For exactly the same reason.
